Organic ajwain, also known as bishop's weed, bishop seeds, or carom, is an herb commonly used in Indian cuisine. Although ajwain is rarely used raw, when dry-roasted or fried in ghee or oil, it develops a subtle, complex aroma and flavor, similar to that of caraway or thyme, though notably brighter.
